Phil Spector In "Hard To Work With" Shock !!

It's always good to get the story behind the making of a record. Case in point is the wonderful Paris Sisters' "I Love How You Love Me". Written by ex war veteran and sometime whiskey salesman Larry Kolber who discovered one day whilst talking to another ex veteran, who just happened to be a songwriter, that you could make money by writing songs for other people.

Then one day at lunch he writes the lyrics to "I Love How You Love Me" on a napkin in just 7 minutes, goes back across the street to find someone to set it to music and who happens to be "in the office" but Phil Spector who asks for the song for one of his girl groups.

You couldn't make it up..apparently the Paris Sisters are quoted as saying that Mr Spector was "hard to work with"..really, I find that hard to believe...

I Love How You Love Me


  1. Phil Spector sure can create a damned fine pop song. Genius. (Jo said "and then murder somebody").

  2. that's always in the back of my mind these days, the shooting and also the outrageous wigs during the trial. But Christ, he was a genius in the studio.
